popular vote and barack obama to win the electoral college. we had that once before 12 years ago. vice president gore got about half a million votes and governor bush. but people forget that john carey had 71,000 more votes -- if john carey had gotten 71,000 more votes in ohio, he would have won the popular vote and by 3 million puritan -- 3 million. >> simply because of ohio? >> because of ohio. i think it is a possibility that governor romney will get something like 271 and lose the part of the vote. a goes to the question of whether we should have an electoral college at all. for the obama folks it is two things. it is all about a ground game, and one. and number two, he has to deliver a strong message not so much for the undecided, as scott said, but more so for those days voters that are not going to vote for governor romney under any circumstances. diyala decision they're making is whether it is worth going to the polls. -- the only decision they are making is whether it is worth going to the polls. if the last two freshmen -- advertisement i have seen are the morgan freema

single one of you know somebody that voted for obama because they thought hope and change sounded good. but now know that it did not happen. it is not real. hope and change has become an anger, frustration, divide and conquer. we're not going to fall for that, are we? >> no. >> so we got 10 days to go. as you look at the closing arguments, we are talking about what will take to get people back to work, the type of leadership that may lead -- mitt romney has provided throughout his life at running at problems to solve problems. there have been hundreds of millions of dollars of negative advertising tried to disqualify mitt romney. but what we know is that this is a man of integrity, this is a man of principle, this is a man who knows how to create jobs, a man we would be proud to call our president.

voting for barack obama. i think the analogy is apropos because another four years of barack obama will be painful. gerri: we have a gallup tracking poll with from the leading obama 51-46%. and yet in the desperation that we are talking about, you alluded to it, but we did not say it. the comment from the president about romney calling him of the answer. now he used the wrd. the president used the word. >> the president of the united states. gerri: what does that tell you? >> what is interesting about all of these, what they're showing is that the debates, a lot of independents like to present less having seen him in the three debates whereas a lot of independents like mitt romney much more. the washington post-abc poll, 47-10 for romney liking him more rather than less. for obama it was 17-26 liking him less rather than more. so the debates did not serve the president well, and he continues down this path. it's kind of inexplicable. gerri: i want to play some sound from all right who i think some of the problem. voters passed. >> college graduates should not have to live out ther
